Rules on rainwater make no sense: Letter to the Editor
August 11, 2011 · 9:32 AM
obedience to authority is last week’s article, “New regulation will allow households to capture rain.”
Are we really willing to submit to laws regulating every little detail of our existence on this planet? Inane laws imposed by those who simultaneously allow and encourage the exploitation and despoiling of the planet and life upon it for the sake of “progress” and “growth” and a house of cards called “the economy.”
There’s staggering change on the horizon; it would behoove us to take note and learn the skills, among them how best to use rainwater, to cope with the radically different world bearing down upon us. Regardless of silly laws and regulations.
